This 116-Year-Old Woman Has THE Secret To Living A Long Life

This is just my opinion, but I’d rather booze it up, be a gluton, and live till I’m 60 and die of a heart attack. I wouldn’t want to be a shriveled-up dinosaur, but honestly more power to Miss Emma Moreno, this feisty Italian who somehow became the oldest person on earth. She’s a 116-year-old woman with the key to eternal life (sort of), and she’s also the only person still alive who was born in the 1800s (she was born in 1899). Here she is in all her glory:

So what’s her secret? How was she able to live this long? You’d be surprised at her answer!

Staying single. That’s right: first and foremost, she didn’t want to be “dominated by anyone,” especially after dealing with an abusive marriage, which she squashed back in 1938.

She lives on a daily diet of two raw eggs, minced meat, pasta, homemade brandy (yaaaay, booze!), and only a glass of milk for dinner. And she’s obviously doing something right given she worked as a chef till she turned 75 and then retired.

So this is all you need to do if you want to live ungodly number of years in your life: be single, crack eggs, drink milk, eat minced meat and pasta, and drink brandy until you’re sloshed. Some of us might actually agree with that….
